Decoupage approach. Classic

Decoupage approach is a sort of ornament by transferring a picture on the floor of an object. The traditional strategy of decoupage may be very easy. The image is printed on a serviette. The serviette is hooked up to the article and varnished. The serviette turns into clear, and the drawing is as if it have been drawn on the article. However I am going to inform you about my decoupage approach. It is slightly bit extra sophisticated than the traditional approach. However the image appears to be like extra lifelike.

Decoupage technique

I use this approach to create reward classic stones for sale on Etsy. I acquire pebbles on the coast of the Baltic Sea.

Classic decoupage

The sequence of steps in my decoupage approach:

1) Cowl the stone with a layer of varnish. We wait till it dries.
2) Cowl the stone with the second coat. Varnish the printout with a sample. We put it on every different. Firmly press. Set apart to dry for 12 hours.
3) Rinse the layer of paper from the stone underneath heat water. I put the stone in a pile of water and wait for the paper to dissolve.
4) When the paper is utterly eliminated from the stone coat – Lacquering.

That is it! Such a straightforward decoupage approach.
Then I adorn the stone with acrylic paints and polish it once more. Such classic work could be offered on Etsy.
